My name is Sarah Henry and I am the owner and designer of Scripted Swirls. I was born & raised in New York and don't see myself ever leaving! I'm a Dunkin' coffee fanatic and love me a good rom-com movie.... guess it makes sense that I'm in the business of love! I am passionate about weddings and am here to make yours stand out - let's work some magic!
ABOUT THE BIZ
HOW IT STARTED
When beginning Scripted Swirls in 2020 I was also working in Healthcare Public Relations. It was really hard for me to escape the craziness of the new COVID world as it consumed my life at my 9-5 job and also was the only thing everyone spoke about outside of work. Hand lettering and beginning this business became my "escape" from it all.
I initially taught myself handlettering back in college for sorority recruitment where I was in charge of recruiting new members for my sorority. I was so focused on making our signs and name tags look as good as possible so I watched Youtube videos on lettering and studied calligraphy style fonts, to understand the basics of hand lettering.
After recruitment I stopped practicing hand lettering for a bit just because there were other priorities on my plate at that time.
HOW IT'S GOING
In 2020 my job went remote and I had a lot of extra time on my hands since I was no longer commuting 3+ hours daily. I decided to open up an Etsy shop where my first product was bridal denim jackets (which then turned into Bestsellers on Etsy!)
I worked my 9-5 job and ran Scripted Swirls on the side from June 2020 - October 2021 when I then realized that I couldn't do both any longer.I made the decision to put my 2 weeks in at my corporate job and have not looked back since! It was quite a scary leap but I have so much faith in myself and my business and am so excited to see what the future has in store.
I can't wait to work with you and create something you love by doing what I love!
